The ASUNM Senate established the Jenny Marie Ames Scholarship in memory of our former colleague, teacher, and friend to recognize students, like Jenny, who demonstrate outstanding character, vision, and leadership qualities.
Jenny served as Associate Justice for the ASUNM Court from August of 1996 until her untimely death on November 7th of the same year. During her time at UNM, she touched the lives of many students and staff. While serving on Student Court, she acted vigilantly to maintain the standards of our Constitution. She was both fair and impartial in her judgments and was working to revise the Judicial Code to make it more equitable and current.
ASUNM would like to keep Jenny’s memory alive by awarding these prizes in her name to those students who reflect the intelligence, community service, and determination that personified Jenny Marie Ames.
